Communism Is Just Inflated Capitalism?

, , , , | Right | July 27, 2022

I work in a small organic grocery store that sources from smaller independent farms. As a result, our produce is usually more expensive but always high quality. Due to recent world events and some crazy inflation, prices have been going up. One customer takes offense.

Customer: “I just don’t understand why the prices are going up! All this stuff is American! That’s why I buy it.”

Me: “Well, the farmers need to charge more, because their workers need to be paid more, because goods cost more, and so on and so forth. It’s a vicious cycle.”

Customer: “So, it’s the workers demanding more?”

Me: “That’s part of it.”

Customer: “But that’s communism!”

Me: “No, ma’am, that’s capitalism.”
